Default • Spares from the weekend.

Hey guys, **Quick rant** OK so I've said it before and I'll say it again! It's so hard to find properly butchered ribs out here... Seems they have all been "scraped" down to the bone for the sale of the loin. There are very few places I can get good ribs unless I order them by the case.

OK this is has become my new BIGGEST & most annoying food pet peeve!!! We have a bargain wholesale out here (like a sams or cosco) and they have some of the best ribs (cuz they buy from the same farm I'd get my cases from & sell them individually) which is all good and well but it's thet they DO TO THEM!!! I have yet to wrap my mind around WHY they do this! I am SOOO close to calling management.. lol They actually put IN WORK to make a good product worse... This is what they do... it's 2 packs of ribs... as I bought them... out of 2 separate packages



ANYWAYS... That off my chest I did smoke them up and they were great... (BTW I usually trim St. Lois but I think I was too annoyed to do that this day... )

Was out of my rub so I did up another batch:


Seasoned up and thrown on the smoker with some Guava


And they smoked up great! Sorry no after pics... They went pretty fast with the guys around.







And they're coming off...


Thanks for looking... & listen to a stupid rant..
Cheers

Please rant away. I am 100% with you on this. I normally get my ribs from costco as they are pretty consistent. Now I haven't seen this done there. But sometimes I'll venture out and get some ribs from Publix when they are on sale. A lot of times their ribs are a little meatier, but they do this stupid "hey lets cut an inch or two or 5" into each rib and it screws them up.

My guess at this thought process is the pre-cut is into the thicker rib tip section and they think they are helping you get through that thicker bone. Now I don't get many spares from them anymore, but sometime you don't see this pre-cut as they fold under some of the rib sometimes since it won't all fit lying flat in the packaging. Fool me once shame on you, fool me 5 times............

*Stepping off my soapbox* Oh and those ribs still looked great. Next time I'm going to ask them why they do it and if they have any in the back they haven't screwed.......pre-cut yet .

I've seen spares that still have half the sternum attached that have been cut in a similar manner so you can separate the individual ribs without cutting the sternum yourself, but I don't know what they did to those. I'm glad to see that they cooked up deliciously.
